It's Vaughan!

[not Vaughn]

CRITICAL THOUGHT Vaughn [sic] Bell, a British psychologist, first began tracking sites with reports of mind control in 2004.

I'm a little behind the Times, but the prolific and serious-looking Dr Vaughan Bell (of Mind Hacks fame) appeared in the Fashion & Style section of the New York Times. The article isn't really about fashion, it's about Bell's interesting work on online psychosis,
...the interaction between the internet and psychosis that explored online communities that may be focused on delusional beliefs or comprised almost entirely of people who are having psychotic experiences.
The NYT article, Sharing Their Demons on the Web, describes a number of sites devoted to things like mind control and "gang stalking." The visitors reinforce each other's pathology, but also find some much needed support:

Dr. Bell and some other mental health professionals say that even if the users of such sites are psychotic, forging an online connection to others and being told — perhaps for the first time — “you are not crazy” could actually have a positive effect on their illnesses.

“We know, for example, that things like social support, all of these positive social aspects are very good for people’s mental illness,” Dr. Bell said. “I wouldn’t say it’s entirely and completely positive, but it can be positive.”

Chemtrails, anyone?

I can't believe what we've seen outside
You and me watching the jets go by

Down by the sea
So many people
They've already drowned


You and me watching
You and me watching
The chemtrails is where we belong
That's where we'll be when we die in the slipstream
We'll climb in a hole in the sky

this is getting old [JIM QUEST stated what, all issues of decency aside]:

a sentence borrowed from the DOE:
This activity provides technical expertise, SCIENTIFIC problem-solving, and TECHNICAL solutions to support more precise quantification and confirmation of the technical bases for decision making at sites.

A premier code, EMSolve has influenced the direction of electromagnetic simulations in government, academia, and industry. It not only simulates complex environments that other codes can’t but also offers a platform to couple other kinds of physics that bring intractable problems within reach of our supercomputers. The code is unusually flexible in applying the underlying equations that govern its calculations, allowing the user to perform what-if scenarios across timescales ranging from billionths of a second to tens of seconds.

nother DARPA project involved simulating the behavior of radar waves inside a building. Radar uses electromagnetic waves to detect and image objects and to determine their distance from an observer. In principle, a radar system with advanced computer processing of reflected signals could determine a building’s internal structure. “We’re helping DARPA to better understand the complex radar-scattering mechanisms that occur inside buildings,” says White.
